Select 820-Ni2

Low Alloy / Flux Cored / Gas Shielded


Features

  • Premium electrode with 2.2-2.5% nickel and microalloying to produce welds with enhanced CVN toughness.
  • Excellent charpy v-notch toughness and tensile strength in the range of 80,000-100,000 psi.
  • The arc transfer is soft; it melts onto the puddle in a small to medium droplet mode.
  • Slag removal is very good and the bead profile is smooth, with minimum convexity.
  • Typically used to weld steels such as ASTM A572, A575 & A734.
  • This product is used in offshore platform construction, earthmoving, mining machinery, and bridge construction.
